Having a baby is one of the most exciting times in your life. Nothing is more rewarding than the privilege of caring for this new life and providing an environment in which both you and your child will thrive and develop. Choosing the pediatrician that can best care for your child is an important decision. At Pediatric Specialists Medical Group, we share your joy and enthusiasm and look forward to the opportunity in partnering with you on the exciting journey of raising a child.
Please feel free to call our office if you have additional questions about us. Or, if you prefer, call today to schedule a prenatal, "Get Acquainted" meeting.
We support a parent's decision to breast or bottle feed and will work with you to provide the best nutritional needs for your newborn. Should you decide to nurse your baby, we pride ourselves in being the most breastfeeding friendly practice in the area.
Dr. Pham is the only pediatrician in the Tampa Bay vicinity who is also an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). That means she has completed additional training and certification to help you with your breastfeeding needs.
Dr. Pham has been helping mothers breastfeed for over 20 years. She has nursed all 3 of her children, including her premature twin sons. She understands the challenges of modern day breastfeeding and is prepared to provide you with hands on assistance as well as up to date, evidence based lactation information.
Dr. Pham and our well trained staff can help you with common nursing issues such as proper latching, engorgement, painful nursing to more difficult situations such as low milk supply, nursing premature infants, nursing while on medications, after plastic surgeries etc. We are committed to give you the support and tools you need to have a successful and enjoyable breastfeeding experience.
When your baby is born at an affiliated hospital, simply tell your obstetrician and the hospital staff that you have chosen Pediatric Specialists Medical Group as your child's pediatrician. Our office will be notified of your baby's birth by the hospital staff. Upon discharge, please contact our office about scheduling your baby's first visit to our office.
